This little business began in 2016 as a bricks & mortar shop in Polperro, Cornwall, run by me (Bella), selling local artisan gifts and homeware. Now, although the physical shop's doors have closed, the shop in its essence continues to gently and happily grow online.
I now spend less time driving to and from work and more time treasure hunting, making, photographing, listing goodies on the website and parcelling up online orders.
All raffia and embroidery items listed in the online shop are handmade by myself. Other items are made by local artists and artisans or other ethical small businesses (mentioned in the descriptions).
My goal continues to be to bring together in one place hand crafted and eco-conscious gifts and homeware – mainly sourced locally – thereby celebrating small business, skill, creativity, sustainability and traceability.
